Active Directory 2008

Hi


What is the different between using internal domain name (company.local ) for Active Directory instead of (company.com).

What are advantages and disadvantages for both? What could be potential problem when doing so and what could be a big advantage?

thanx

Lets say you public Domain is company.com. You want to use this name space for your AD environment. What will happen is, your Domain Controller will think that it is Authoritative for this Domain. This can cause conflicts.

Microsoft recommend that you keep your AD - DNS name space private to your public Domain name space and this will prevent any DNS issues.
